Easy walk up from road to trig pillar.Topographer5729/09/2018
A tedious and inconsequential hill. Walked up the bramble and bog infested field to the trig then hopped over the barbed wire and walked down the mast track (much better/drier). Drove off.Gill12/01/2018

Short walk from lane with good parking in field entrance.Ramblingpaul18/08/2017
It was too hot to make a longer route out of this one, so bagged it from the road 100 yards from the trig point. We walked up the road to the masts, but realised the trig point was on the other side of the fence, so I climbed over the BWF and then descended via an overgrown field. With Keith and Ross (although they didn't bother with the trig).islamidget18/06/2017

From minor road to SE. Hopped right hand gate and walked the short distance to the trig. Miserable weather.geralddavison01/05/2016
Last of 3 Ma and 2 Hu today, starting with Garn Fawr by the Pembrokeshire coast. Much better than expectations- fabulous views over the Gower and to Lundy. Better view of Brecon Beacons than from Mynydd Llangyndeyrn. So I spent 20 mins here, walking down the field next to the 2 wind turbines for better coastal views. From road to W, reasonable space to park. Unfortunately some fly tipping here.pwheeler29/04/2016
Parked at gate. Notice declaring war on wind turbines. Fly tipped childrens toys..why? Simple vault over locked gate and trot up to masts and trig in adjacent field. Horrid weather no views.stig_nest14/11/2015
